The Spirit Equine Workshop

Three-day Spirit Somatic Equine Workshop…the exhale.

So much of our lives are spent doing for others; doing to understand; being there from a place of integrity and love, powered by this passion that we have for supporting others in their life process.

If we are a mother or a father, we are giving to our children, and to each other when we have the energy. If we are a businessperson, we are giving to the betterment of the organization in a way that is honoring of different personalities, different demands, different expectations.

If we are a therapist, we are guiding, listening, holding and supporting our clients; knowing that if they are willing to do the work, we are going to do what we can to support them in their healing process.

This giving, and giving from a place of authenticity is so beautiful, so kind, so loving, and so compassionate.

The three-day Spirit is about receiving; it is about the exhale, and then the full-bodied inhale. The workshop is the oasis in the desert. It is being held for three days; attended to; supported, and invited to ‘be’ and to be supported in ‘being’ in the presence of another ‘being’ that just happens to be a 1200 pound horse. A horse who sees more than anyone’s eyes can see, or ‘others’ can sense. Horses honor, nurture, and bring out the exhale, and the deeper inhale. They somehow simply naturally, by being who they are at the core of their being, help us to re-connect to our core, our knowing, our truth, our “I” within.

They attend to those of us who give. Nourishing our spirits, listening to what is not being said, but needs to be heard. They are the exhale that allows for the deeper inhale.

The Meadows honors you for all that you give, and invite you to receive for three days, on a beautiful ranch in AZ; Rancho Rio Bonita. A place where three days can make the difference in one’s life journey.
